Last acquisition ( and enhancement )!

A stunning large moth, rhodium plated sterling, with paste stones, little blue cab eyes.
2.3/4" or 7cm wide!

Maker's mark WB is for Wilhelm Becker, Pforzheim.

I wanted to fill the openwork, but not permanently with enamel resin...
As it is not for sale, I went for thick tracing paper cut and glued in some points to give a camphor glass effect.

As always, I'm very glad of my project :-P, and would be glad too to get your thoughts about it.
